  1. Niobia and tantala codoped orthorhombic zirconia ceramics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Hoeftberger, M.; Gritzner, G.


    During recent studies it was found that codoping of zirconia with niobia and tantala yielded very corrosion resistant, orthorhombic zirconia ceramics. The powders for those novel ceramics were made via the sol-gel technique by hydrolysis of the respective metal propoxides; a method which required dry-box techniques during the preparation of the alkoxides. In these studies the authors investigated the fabrication of precursor material from aqueous solutions. The preparation of aqueous solutions of salts of zirconium, niobium and tantalum is hampered by rapid hydrolysis. Premature hydrolysis of the chlorides and oxichlorides of niobium, tantalum and zirconium can be, however, prevented in aqueous solutions of oxalic acid. Thus the authors investigated the coprecipitation of hydroxides as precursors by reacting oxalic acid solutions of the respective cations with aqueous ammonia. In addition they studied the effects of calcination and of hydrothermal conversion of the hydroxides to oxides on the powder characteristics and on the mechanical properties of the niobia and tantala codoped zirconia ceramics

    Mechanical losses in dielectric mirror coatings of interferometric gravitational wave detectors are a main issue for the proposed advanced generation of gravitational wave detectors. Recent investigations have shown that the mechanical loss of the dielectric mirror coatings (tantala/silica stacks) is probably the main contribution to the detector noise. There are indications that among both coating materials tantala gives the major contribute to mechanical loss. Experimental details of a measuring setup and investigations of the temperature dependency of the mechanical dissipation in thin tantala films on different substrates are presented.

    Current interferometric gravitational wave detectors use test masses with mirror coatings formed from multiple layers of dielectric materials, most commonly alternating layers of SiO 2 (silica) and Ta 2 O 5 (tantala). However, mechanical loss in the Ta 2 O 5 /SiO 2 coatings may limit the design sensitivity for advanced detectors. We have investigated sources of mechanical loss in the Ta 2 O 5 /SiO 2 coatings, including loss associated with the coating-substrate interface, with the coating-layer interfaces and with the coating materials. Our results indicate that the loss is associated with the coating materials and that the loss of Ta 2 O 5 is substantially larger than that of SiO 2

  4. Amorphous tantala and its relationship with the molten state (United States)

    Alderman, O. L. G.; Benmore, C. J.; Neuefeind, J.; Coillet, E.; Mermet, A.; Martinez, V.; Tamalonis, A.; Weber, R.


    The structure factors of molten T a2O5 and N b2O5 have been measured by high-energy x-ray and pulsed neutron diffraction. These are compared to transmission-mode x-ray diffraction through a self-supported 15-μm ion-beam sputtered amorphous tantala film. Atomistic models derived from the diffraction data by means of empirical potential structure refinement reveal that tantala and niobia liquids are very close to isomorphous, as confirmed by measurement of a molten mixture, T a0.8N b1.2O5 . Nonetheless, peak Nb-O bond lengths are about 1 % shorter than those for Ta-O, at temperatures, T*=T /Tmelt , scaled to the melting points. Mean coordination numbers are nM O≃5.6 (1 ) ,nO M≃2.23 (4 ) in the liquid state, and nTaO≃6.6 (2 ) ,nOTa≃2.63 (8 ) in the solid. The liquids are built from five- and six-fold M -O polyhedra which connect principally by corner sharing, with a minority of edge sharing; a-T a2O5 on the other hand has a local structure more akin to the crystalline polymorphs, built primarily from six- and seven-fold polyhedra, with a larger degree of edge sharing. The structural differences between liquid and amorphous T a2O5 , coupled with observations of increasing peak bond lengths upon cooling, are consistent with the interpretation that the amorphous film reaches a supercooled liquidlike metastable equilibrium during deposition. In other words, the amorphous film shares a common progenitor state with a hypothetical glass quenched from a fragile melt. In addition, we show that recent classical interatomic potentials do not fully reproduce the diffraction data, and infer that inclusion of attractive (non-Coulombic) Ta-Ta interactions is important, particularly for obtaining the correct degree of edge sharing, coordination numbers, and densities. Nanoscale inhomogeneity of the amorphous film is confirmed by the observation of small-angle x-ray scattering.

  5. Effect of elevated substrate temperature deposition on the mechanical losses in tantala thin film coatings (United States)

    Vajente, G.; Birney, R.; Ananyeva, A.; Angelova, S.; Asselin, R.; Baloukas, B.; Bassiri, R.; Billingsley, G.; Fejer, M. M.; Gibson, D.; Godbout, L. J.; Gustafson, E.; Heptonstall, A.; Hough, J.; MacFoy, S.; Markosyan, A.; Martin, I. W.; Martinu, L.; Murray, P. G.; Penn, S.; Roorda, S.; Rowan, S.; Schiettekatte, F.; Shink, R.; Torrie, C.; Vine, D.; Reid, S.; Adhikari, R. X.


    Brownian thermal noise in dielectric multilayer coatings limits the sensitivity of current and future interferometric gravitational wave detectors. In this work we explore the possibility of improving the mechanical losses of tantala, often used as the high refractive index material, by depositing it on a substrate held at elevated temperature. Promising results have been previously obtained with this technique when applied to amorphous silicon. We show that depositing tantala on a hot substrate reduced the mechanical losses of the as-deposited coating, but subsequent thermal treatments had a larger impact, as they reduced the losses to levels previously reported in the literature. We also show that the reduction in mechanical loss correlates with increased medium range order in the atomic structure of the coatings using x-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy. Finally, a discussion is included on our results, which shows that the elevated temperature deposition of pure tantala coatings does not appear to reduce mechanical loss in a similar way to that reported in the literature for amorphous silicon; and we suggest possible future research directions.

  6. Tantala-based sol-gel coating for capillary microextraction on-line coupled to high-performance liquid chromatography. (United States)

    Tran, MinhPhuong; Turner, Erica B; Segro, Scott S; Fang, Li; Seyyal, Emre; Malik, Abdul


    A sol-gel organic-inorganic hybrid sorbent, consisting of chemically integrated tantalum (V) ethoxide (TaEO) and polypropylene glycol methacrylate (PPGM), was developed for capillary microextraction (CME). The sol-gel sorbent was synthesized within a fused silica capillary through hydrolytic polycondensation of TaEO and chemical incorporation of PPGM into the evolving sol-gel tantala network. A part of the organic-inorganic hybrid sol-gel network evolving in the vicinity of the capillary walls had favorable conditions to get chemically bonded to the silanol groups on the capillary surface forming a surface-bonded coating. The newly developed sol-gel sorbent was employed to isolate and enrich a variety of analytes from aqueous samples for on-line analysis by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) equipped with a UV detector. CME was performed on aqueous samples containing trace concentrations of analytes representing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, ketones, alcohols, amines, nucleosides, and nucleotides. This sol-gel hybrid coating provided efficient extraction with CME-HPLC detection limits ranging from 4.41pM to 28.19 pM. Due to direct chemical bonding between the sol-gel sorbent coating and the fused silica capillary inner surface, this sol-gel sorbent exhibited enhanced solvent stability. The sol-gel tantala-based sorbent also exhibited excellent pH stability over a wide pH range (pH 0-pH 14). Furthermore, it displayed great performance reproducibility in CME-HPLC providing run-to-run HPLC peak area relative standard deviation (RSD) values between 0.23% and 3.83%. The capillary-to-capillary RSD (n=3), characterizing capillary preparation method reproducibility, ranged from 0.24% to 4.11%. The results show great performance consistency and application potential for the sol-gel tantala-PPGM sorbent in various fields including biomedical, pharmaceutical, and environmental areas.

    Konstantinov, A. A.; Sazonova, T. E. [Vsesojuznyj Nauchno - Isledovatel' skij Institut Im. D.I. Mendeleeva, Leningrad, SSSR (Russian Federation)


    To obtain a high degree of accuracy in determining the specific activity of sources by the absolute counting of particles with a 4{pi} counter, attention must be paid to the preparation of the radioactive sources. At the Mendeleev Institute of Metrology, celluloid films (surface density 8-10 {mu}/cm{sup 2}) coated on both sides with gold (10-15 {mu}g/cm{sup 2} ) or palladium (5-6 {mu}g/cm{sup 2}) are used as the bases of the radioactive sources. In order to reduce the correction for absorption of beta particles in the radioactive deposit, the base is specially treated with insulin. The authors present an extremely sensitive and effective method, employing the electron-capture nuclide {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr), for determining the uniform distribution of the active layer over the entire insulintreated surface. A solution of {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr) salt was applied to the insulin-tteated film, and the source of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) Auger K electrons thus obtained was investigated with the help of a proportional 4{pi} counter. The total number of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) Auger K electrons from the source was 8-12% less than the fluorescence coefficient (calculated from the number of {sup 54}Cr ({sup 54}Mn) K X-quanta emitted by the source) and the number of K electrons absorbed in the film (determined by the 'sandwich' method). From the differences, for insulintreated and untreated {sup 54}Mn ({sup 54}Cr) sources, between the calculated and recorded number of Auger electrons it is possible to reach a definite conclusion regarding the quality of the insulin treatment.

    Second-generation interferometric gravitational-wave detectors will operate at temperatures noticeably above room temperature. Study was done to determine what effect elevated temperatures would have on the Q and coating thermal noise of the detector mirrors. Results show that increased temperature increases loss angle in a manner that is more significant at higher frequencies. Trends show that the increased temperature will have a negligible effect at the low (100 Hz) frequencies important to second-generation detectors

  9. Structural influences on the laser damage resistance of optical oxide coatings for use at 1064 nm

    Optical coatings of titania (TiO{sub 2}) and tantala (Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5}) prepared by reactive r.f. diode and d.c. plasmatron sputtering were investigated for the influence of structural properties on the 1064 nm laser damage resistance. Using various methods of characterizing the compositional, crystallographic, microstructural and optical properties, it was found that the damage thresholds are directly related to the content of oxygen in the films in excess of the stoichiometric values, whereas grain sizes and refractive indices show no systematic influences valid for both oxide materials. The highest oxygen-to-metal atomic ratios and thus the highest damage threshold were achieved by the use of r.f diode sputtering. X-ray photospectroscopy investigations of tantala coatings with different oxygen-to-tantalum atomic ratios up to 2.75 revealed for both constituents of the oxide only binding energies representative for tantalum pentoxide.

  11. Effects of microstructure on the elastic properties of selected Ta2O5--Eu2O3 compositions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Malarkey, C.J.


    Elastic properties and internal friction of selected compositions of tantala-doped monoclinic europia were studied at temperatures up to 1500 0 C using the sonic resonance technique. Unit cell parameters between 25C and 1000 0 C for monoclinic Eu 2 O 3 were calculated from high temperature x-ray diffractometer data. Large-grained monoclinic specimens having less than 6.0 Ta cation percent substitution exhibited anomalous elastic behavior when thermally cycled. Compositions above this addition level exhibited linear elastic behavior. Internal friction values also varied abnormally with grain size, composition, and temperature. The anomalous behavior was attributed to microcracking caused by thermal expansion anisotropies. The critical grain size was found to be approximately 14 μm. The high temperature diffractometry measurements supported the postulate that the grain coarsening effect associated with sintered monoclinic Eu 2 O 3 is the controlling factor for microcracking

  12. Structural and optical properties of sol-gel deposited proton conducting Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5} films

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ozer, N.; Lampert, C.M.


    Proton conducting tantalum oxide films were deposited by spin coating using a sol-gel process. The coating solutions were prepared using Ta(OC{sub 2}H{sub 5}){sub 5} as a precursor. X-ray diffraction studies determined that the sol-gel films, heat treated at temperatures below 400 C, were amorphous. Films heat treated at higher temperatures were crystalline Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5}. The solar transmission values (T{sub s}) of tantala films on glass generally range from 0.8--0.9 depending on thickness. The refractive index and the extinction coefficient were evaluated from transmittance characteristics in the UV-VIS-NIR regions. The refractive index values calculated at 550 nm increased from 1.78 to 1.97 with increasing heat treatment from 150 to 450 C. The films heat treated at different temperatures showed low absorption with extinction coefficients of less than k=1x10{sup -3} in the visible range. Spectrophotometric and impedance spectroscopic investigations performed on Ta{sub 2}O{sub 5} films revealed that these films have protonic conductivity of 3.2x10{sup -6} S/cm. The films are suitable for proton conducting layers in electrochromic (EC) devices.

  13. Medium-Index Mixed-Oxide Layers for Use in AR-Coatings (United States)

    Ganner, Peter


    Ttedesign philosophy of MC-AR-Coatings can be divided into two categories: a) Restriction to two film materials, namely one high-index and one low-index material and b) Use of medium-index layers in addition to high- and low-index layers. Both philosophies have advan-tages and drawbacks. In case a) the total number of layers necessary to obtain a required reflectance curve has to be higher. Thus in case of production errors it can be a problem to find out which layer was responsible for a deviation of the measured reflectance from the nominal one. In case b) using more than two materials reduces the total number of layers and consequently, pinpointing the cause of even small production errors is made simpler. Unfortunately there are not many materials commercially available which can be used to make hard, durable and robust films in the medium-index range namely between n=1.65 and n=2.00. In this paper the results of homogeneous mixtures of Alumina (Al203) and Tantala (Ta205) used for EB-gun evaporated medium-index films in AR-coatings is presented. It is shown that by proper adjustment of the weight percentages of the oxide mixture one can get homogeneous films in this index range. A number of design examples show the favourable application of such layers in AR-coatings. Among the most important ones is the well known QHQ-design for BBAR-coatings as well as AR-designs of the multiple half wave type with extended bandwidth. Further applications of the mixed-oxide layers are AR-coatings for cemented optical elements and beam splitters.

    sobre las emulsiones rapidas y lentas con elevada concentracion de plata. En las emulsiones que se usan para la medicion de dosis elevadas y que se revelan en presencia de retardadores, se ha determinado la influencia ejercida por la energia y la atenuacion de la imagen latente sobre la precision de las determinaciones. Por ultimo, se describen los errores de la evaluacion fotografica de dosis elevadas hallados aplicando metodos estadisticos al analisis de los resultados experimentales. Se examina tambien el incremento del error en las regiones de debil y fuerte ennegrecimiento. Tambien se consideran los errores debidos a la calibracion de los aparatos, la influencia de la energia, la atenuacion de la imagen latente, el tratamiento quimico y la medicion del ennegrecimiento. La hipotesis de que la dosis medida con dosimetros de pelicula corresponde a la dosis recibida por el organismo entero, constituye un error que no se toma en consideracion.

    tecnicas confirman la opinion de que los radioisotopos encierran enormes promesas en el terreno cientifico y tecnico. Por lo que se refiere a las fuentes de rayos X, puede decirse que todo cuanto se realiza en el terreno de la tecnologia de los rayos X, salvo la determinacion de la estructura de los cristales, puede hacerse con mayor sencillez recurriendo a los medios citados.

    peliculas y borra d e polietileno para dosis de exposicion a rayos gamma de {sup 60}Co hasta 8,0 x 10{sup 5} r/h. Determinaron tambien la velocidad de transformacion del estireno en su homopoirmero, en las suspensiones de borra. Examinaron al microscopio las peliculas injertadas a fin de evaluar la proporcion de homopolfmero ocluido. Los resultados obtenidos indican que la mayor parte del incremento de peso en las muestras de pelicula corresponde al homopolfmero ocluido. En las pruebas con borra, en las cuales el incremento de peso se debe principalmente al copolimero injertado, dicho incremento es aproximadamente proporcional a la dosis y la velocidad de reaccion es casi proporcional a la rafe cuadrada de la intensidad de la dosis gamma. La reducida energia de activacion correspondiente a la velocidad de reaccion excluye la posibilidad de controlar la difusion en la borra y en las peliculas delgadas para intensidades de exposicion inferiores a 10{sup 5} r/h. En los experimentos con borra a 18{sup o}C e intensidades de 7,2 x 10{sup 4} r/h, la velocidad de formacion del homopolfmero coincide con el valor ya conocido para la polimerizacion del estireno puro.

    moleculas blanco en distintas condiciones de dosificacion. Los experimentos en curso sobre moleculas analogas en tamano a las del blanco han contribuido a la aclaracion de los mecanismos de recombinacion de los atomos de retroceso. Particular interes reviste el rendimiento de productos con un atomo de carbono mas que el blanco, que resultan de una reaccion de adicion. La localizacion del atomo adicional en una molecula blanco que tenga varios lugares de adicion proporciona informacion sobre la naturaleza del proceso. Cuando el atomo de retroceso es moderado y su energia disminuye hasta el punto en que es posible la formacion de un enlace, al menos temporal, el exceso de energia que el atomo llC cede al sistema puede originar la ruptura de otros enlaces del complejo activado, lo que suele dar origen a un producto de dos atomos de carbono. Si el complejo es capaz de conservar su integridad, suele resultar un producto de adicion. Por tanto, la comparacion del rendimiento de compuestos de dos atomos de carbono (acetileno, etileno y etano) y de productos de adicion proporciona una informacion valiosa sobre la energia a la que pueden formarse enlaces estables, y sobre la naturaleza del grupo que contiene el {sup 11}C y que participa en la reaccion.
